We had a lovely stay at the Montagu Country Hotel in Montagu , South Africa. We had a courtyard room which opened out on the gardens and pool, which were like a little oasis! the staff were friendly and helpful and the whole stay was extremely relaxing. Meals were of a good standard though the wine list was limited and not great. the bar was very welcoming and the staff and decor were wonderfful. we will be returning when we are next on the Garden Route.

My wife and I had the privilege to spend our 30th anniversary at the Montagu Country Hotel. What an experience! We were welcomed with a glass of the finest muscadel. We went for an hour's tour through the town of Montagu and its surroundings with the Montagu Country Hotel Cadillac. The tour guide was amazing! We had a delicious supper at the restaurant and a good night's rest in a clean, air-conditioned room. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast under the trees with birds around us. We went on a wine tour and enjoyed a late afternoon snack at the restaurant. This was one of the best experiences ever!

Returned for an overnight stay having been so impressed with The Montagu during our outbound trip from Cape Town. Had an upgrade to the Honeymoon Suite which was a lovely touch. Food at restaurant is superb, pools are on small side for swimming lengths but more than adequate for calling or for kids. Bar is friendly and staff are attentive and funny.

We spent two nights at the Montagu Country Hotel and it was a pity we were not here for longer. Room 2 on the upper floor of the main auction building is one of the bigger art deco rooms and no two rooms are identical. Lovely room with period art deco furniture although we found the bed a bit small. The bathroom is spacious with an excellent Large whirlpool bath and small walk in shower and double sinks. The whole hotel is beautifully furnished with art deco antiques and there is a separate coffee shop as well as the main restaurant Charlestons where we ate one night(separate report). Breakfast is good and the main pool area is spotless with comfortable recliners and plenty of shade. There is also a smaller pool nearer to the outbuildings. Staff were all very friendly. One point to note is that the first floor rooms in the main building can only be accessed by the main staircase so if you have plenty of luggage help from a porter is welcome. We would certainly stay again.

Stayed here for the third time for a cycling event. Great location lovely bar area. Good breakfast. Comfy rooms and lovely pools. Staff went out of the way for an extremely early breakfast before we left to cycle in the morning. Staff are always welcoming and helpful.

Our stay was nothing else but perfect. Very nice hotel and rooms, all very well maintained. Very good breakfast. Lunch and dinner in the restaurant was excellent and service on the same level. No doubt - we want to come back.

Dear HeidiPap Thank you for the kind words, I'll be sure to share with the team. You are 100% correct, the hotel in the center of the village, walking distance from everything, but also with an activity center, local information office and spa on-site. We look forward to seeing back with us soon. Kind regards, P-J Basson

Good Morning Charles We appreciate all feedback, and also the opportunity to respond : The unit you booked is advertised as a self catering unit, with the option of adding meals, like breakfast. Your main complaint last night was that you wanted DSTV in your room, once again, the unit booked indicate smart TV with pre-loaded Netflix. You normally book at a Dream Vacation resort, and I'm sure they'll be glad to have you back there. We wish you safe travels. Kind regards, P-J Basson
